Rapid Access User Proposals
The CNMS accepts Rapid Access user proposals for expedited peer
review that request support for time-sensitive studies and require
only a limited amount of CNMS resources, typically not more than
proposals may be submitted “off-cycle” between
scheduled proposal calls and may be approved at any time at the
discretion of the CNMS Director. A Rapid Access proposal is especially
appropriate for a relatively quick and straightforward experiment
in a rapidly advancing field or for a proof-of-concept (feasibility)
study intended to support a subsequent regular user proposal.
A Rapid Access proposal may also request access to certain basic
characterization facilities at CNMS using time that is not otherwise
allocated to General User proposals.
submitting a Rapid Access proposal are the same as for a
regular proposal call except
that the submitter
should be sure to include the phrase “Rapid Access proposal” in
the subject line of the transmittal email and include the justification
for requesting Rapid Access in the proposal.
Please contact the CNMS
User Program Manager if you would like
additional information and guidance for submitting a Rapid Access
